Sample personal checks can be filled out to practice the technique of paying via check. These instructional checks can be customized on the Money Instructor website and printed for use by all who desire to engage in check writing exercises.
To use a sample personal check, start by writing the date and the name of the person or company the payment is addressed to. Fill out the amount in both numerical and word formats for added clarity, add a memo about the reason for the payment if desired, and conclude by signing the check with your personal signature. Apply these skills to real checks in the same fashion.
